The Granite Building was built in 1822 by Kellogg and Sabin. Its facade was constructed out of granite and was originally freestanding. According to Syracuse Landmarks by Evamaria Hardin, it is "the oldest downtown structure.” Its history is closely aligned with the history and growth of
the city of Syracuse. It was a general store in its early days and it may have had a salt inspector since a salt scale and counterweight were found on site by a later owner, Mr. Robert Koolakian.

In the 1860s the renown local architect Archimedes Russell had the third floor as his architectural office. Most interesting, it was in this building that John M. Clark, an early pioneer photographer, and an early tenant established a daguerreotype studio in the1840s on the fourth floor. It was one of the oldest photography portrait studios in the country at the time. In an
index of photographers who practiced in Syracuse from 1841-1900, Cleota Reed (1985) listed about thirty five, and according to Koolakian's research, "half of them practiced in the Granite Store at one time or another.” The famous Civil War photographer George N. Barnard, who photographed General Sherman's campaign, was associated with Clark's Studio which he bought in 1853. It continued to be occupied by many artists and apprentices throughout the post Civil War period. The building was owned for many years by Robert Koolakian beginning in 1956. He ran a well known mens clothing store, Koolakian, in the ground floor retail space. Mr. Koolakian was a meticulous caretaker of the building who researched historical documents detailing the building's illustrious history.
